Check Mate

Our kids haven't been the greatest at playing games together.  Not for a lack of trying.  I have instituted all sorts of "motivational programs" to get the whole board-game thing rolling.  The root of the problem is that nobody likes to lose.  But recently we have seen great strides.  We have a loooonnng Sunday morning until church starts at 2pm so we've been encouraging a lot of game playing on Sundays.  It seems like they are actually starting to enjoy it!  Hurray!!!

What is truly amazing is that the game that they are most excited about right now is chess!  What little girls enjoy chess???  I barely know how to play and think of it as a pretty boring game...but then they are way ahead of me in so many areas!
